Rainy day...

Morning y'all.... I have watched Princess and the Frog a dozen times in the past 5 days- so I thought I would start off with a y'all in honor of it :) It is raining here in "sunny" fort myers... I hate when the day starts with rain! We have been enjoying every minute of sun here though- Addie is a little fish in the water- we have to drag her out kicking and screaming when we are done. Lyla is starting to like the water more and more which is fun to see as well..... Other than that-
I just finished a guest blog entry for Living My Moment... they are having a big celebration in April and wanted guest bloggers... so I did it-you will have to check it out!
